    Hi victorm28962446,

    When you delete any file from portfolio, the portfolio index or File list in portfolio get updated automatically, you just need to save the changes made by you.

    Hope this will help.

    Thansk,

  3. Missing sign in force closes an unsaved pdf form!

    I have several computers I'm using Creative Cloud on. I can't keep up which is signed in and out. I work a lot with pdf forms. What happens is I'm filling an important form and suddenly Acrobat DC just quits without any warning, not asking whether to save. All work is completely lost and not retrievable! Then I can normally do the sign out from other computers and sign in the current computer (with my Adobe ID), but it's too late, the work is already lost.

    It's a terrible problem and should be fixed immediately.

    If the user has an…

    Thanks for your feedback. We are looking into this. Meanwhile could you please let us know whether Acrobat which is not signed in quits immediately after launch or after a while. If it quits after a while, could you please let us know the time period say 1 minute or 5 minutes or more which Acrobat takes to quit on launch.

    For enterprise use, it has too many breadcrumbs to learn more and free downloads. For business use and confidentiality, these links need to be easily removed or hidden from view with the customization tool.

  7. File not viewing correctly in Acrobat XI

    When opening certain pdf files, the screen preview is not correct. The background "disappears". Sometimes though, the background will still print but sometimes it does not. I am on Mac in system Sierra and have tried these files on multiple computers including a pc, with extensions off etc. and always that same result. What I see is not what I get. If I place the pdf file in InDesign it will preview correctly and also export correctly so something InDesign does corrects the problem. I am attaching a file to demonstrate the issue.

  8. Bug - MacOS 10.12.5 (Named) installer as Unidentified Developer

    I've created an Acrobat Pro for Named installer (Via Admin Console) for the MacOS 10.12.5. Downloaded and ran the installer. The OS terminated the installer because it was an "Unidentified Developer".

    I was able to install it after going to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and check OK to install.

    The reason I state this issue is most end users will not know what to do. So this needs to be corrected (maybe Apple.com).

  11. Replace the word emit with omit.

    In advanced printer settings, when selecting a color to exclude from printing (tiny printer icons next to cyan, magenta, yellow, and black color blocks), please change the word emit with omit. Very different meanings.

  13. Adding White Space via the Crop Tool Does Not Work for Some Pages

    Here is a posting I recently made to the Acrobat "Editing and Exporting PDFs" forum:

    try67 wrote: "Yes, Acrobat Pro DC can scale all the pages of the file in a single command."

    As it turns out, Acrobat Pro XI is supposed to be able to do this, but as I stated offline to try76, "... I experimented with increasing the white space around pages (to 8.5 x 11.0) in XI. The single-column test page I sent you is from a 9-page, mostly three-column document, and when I use the Cropping Tool while attempting to do this, there is one…

  14. Press Quality Preset - Default PDF v1.7 needed

    I am a Prepress tech using an APPE workflow, the most current release. I have been seeing problems, since my upgrade and the advent of the CC, with PDF 1.4 being submitted for print. Mostly transparency problems. I have people modify their Adobe Press Quality PDF Preset to PDF 1.7, from InDesign. It helps greatly. Also makes me feel more confident in the soft proofing process, as v1.7 passes my EnFocus and RIP preflights better than lesser PDF versions. And I know this is an InDesign PDF export setting problem, but it is a Distiller preset, available within Indy. Can…

  15. Direct ink feature available in student/teacher version of adobe acrobat pro dc

    I had been using the trial version for Adobe acrobat pro dc and really liked the feature where when i was using the program on my surface pro it automatically detected that i was using the microsoft pen and i could just write on the pdf's. I purchased the student version of the program and when i went to do the same thing and it did not work. I contacted your customer service and the person said the feature was not available on the version i purchased and that i would have to buy a subscription to get that feature.…

  17. Bug - Acrobat Preflight Fixup Transparency Flattening introduces extreme JPG artifacts

    When using the Flatten Transparency Preflight Fixup, transparent images that are flattened are heavily compressed, introducing extreme JPG artifacts and banding in smooth gradients.

    This does not match flattening out of Indesign or Illustrator or using the Flattener in the Acrobat Print Production tools. We would expect to get the same results with the Preflight fixup that would be produced with other flattening methods.

    See attached with examples of original unflattened art, art flattened with Acrobat Print Production and Acrobat Preflight fixup.

    Preflight produces a severely degraded image with visible banding and large artifacts that aren't visible on the other…

  19. actions on Acrobat Pro

    I have to put watermark (my logo" on jpg files in a folder and then save new files to another folder; with an action doing:
    - add watermark (my logo)
    - save in a folder (same name+export as jpeg)
    Compared to the version 7 (I used it until yesterday) it is much slower and works worse because to avoid having to close hundreds of pdf files (which are created do not know why) I had to add the action "do not save": note that one pdf always remains open to close at the end anyway.
    This is on Windows 10

  20. Bug with % symbols in named destinations

    When entering a named destination (for linking to within a PDF), it's impossible to enter a percentage sign ("%", U+0025). The symbol simply disappears from the name once entered.

    It's possible it's being misinterpreted as a formatting specifier in a printf call (or something similar).

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open a document and select "Edit PDF"
    2. Click the bullseye-icon in the left-most pane ("Destinations")
    3. Click "Create New Destination"
    4. Type "Bug%Test" and press Enter
    5. Note the result is "BugTest" instead of the expected "Bug%Test"

    Here's an animated screen-capture (which was too large to upload as an attachment): …
